MUMBAI: In a noteworthy win for the South Asian content devoted OTT platform, YuppTV has acquired the digital broadcasting rights for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. With this, the online content provider will enable cricket fans in close to 100 countries to witness and enjoy all the live action of the 60 T20 matches slated for the fourteenth edition of the cricket league.

YuppTV will be airing all the excitement live from the stadia from 9 April to 30 May 2021 across territories - continental Europe, Australia, Sri Lanka, southeast Asia (except Singapore and Malaysia), central and South America, central Asia, Nepal, Bhutan, and Maldives. The OTT service’s subscribers (outside India) will now join Disney+ Hotstar subscribers (within India) in watching IPL 2021 in their homes. YuppTV subscribers in India will not be able to watch IPL 2021 live as the exclusive rights for the premier league are with Hotstar.

"Cricket has been a craze around the world and the IPL has always been a highly anticipated and powerful property for fans across the globe. With the Vivo IPL now back in India, we are sure that fans are going to revel in the on-ground experience. YuppTV is committed to the growth of sports in the country and will continue to be driven by the power of cricket. Our users can enjoy their favourite sporting event in real time from the convenience of their homes," said YuppTV founder & CEO Uday Reddy.

With the IPL now back in India, all matches are set to take place in various venues across the country – Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai. The playoff matches and final will be played in the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Fans can stream IPL 2021 on the YuppTV website or download the app on their smartphone or smart TV.
